Please go back to my original question -- do you believe there is a Creator of the Universe who cares if humans are Protestant or Catholic or Muslim, or Hindu, or Jew?
If so why and based on what evidence?
They will either avoid to answer these questions ... period ... or they will avoid them by posting more biblical scriptures that they cherry-pluck from their buy-bulls that they believe reinforce the idea that a JEW died on a cross to save Christians.

I suggest that you read the following theology. The Jews have a savior named LORD Jehovah, whose father in Olam Ha Ba is called Elohim.
The Jews didn't need any new testament or another savior. They were already saved according to their own specialized myths.

God (good). Throughout the Hebrew Scriptures two chief names are used for the one true divine being—ELOHIM, commonly translated God in our version, and JEHOVAH translated Lord.
Ok, let me make this easier, read the complete jewish bible. And in the back are pages of translated hebrew words and their meanings.

From the book “Smith’s Bible Dictionary.

QUOTATIONS FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.—The New Testament quotations from the Old form one of the outward bonds of connection between the two parts of the Bible. They are manifold in kind. In the quotations of all kinds from the Old Testament in the New, we find a continual variation from the letter of the older Scriptures. First, all the New Testament writers quoted from the Septuagint; correcting it indeed more or less by the Hebrew, especially when it was needful for their purpose; still abiding by it to so large an extent as to show that it was the primary source whence their quotations were drawn. Secondly, the New Testament writers must have frequently quoted from memory. Thirdly, combined with this there was an alteration of conscious or unconscious design. Sometimes the object of this was to obtain increased force. Sometimes an Old Testament passage is abridged, and in the abridgment so adjusted, by a little alteration, as to present an aspect of completeness, and yet omit what is foreign to the immediate purpose. In some cased even greater liberty of alteration is assumed. In some places, again, the actual words of the original text are taken up, but employed with a new meaning.

The ex-Jew traitors of Judaism called Catholics try to claim that the Jews need Catholics to lead them to perfection in the Jew's OWN religion.

Such idiocy!!!

Theology is manipulation of other people's myths in the quest to suit one's own theology.

According to Catholic theology, they want us to believe that a Jewish god sent his Jewish son to earth to teach Jews how to be good Catholics.

If anything could be more idiotic it remains to be seen.

Does God get the "desired fellowship" from Hindus, Muslims and Jews?

**********

Rev 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, OF ALL NATIONS AND KINDREDS, AND PEOPLE AND TONGUES, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
Rev 7:10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitS upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

Every question we have is answered in The Book. Jesus said, "He that comes to Me, I will in no way cast him/her out." John saw 'a number which no one could count, and it included those from 'every nation and kindred and people and tongues.'

A missionary preached Jesus to an island tribe. Afterwards an old man approached him with tears, and said, "Tell me His name AGAIN. I've known Him for a long time, but I did not know His name!"

Jesus is appearing to many people (Muslims included) in dreams and visions, and they are receiving Him. I correspond with a family in a Muslim country who have found Him, and they are preaching Him at a great cost.

Not to mention the fact that this sinless child is destined to spend eternity in the presence of God. The rest of us poor "intelligent" sinners will have to work out our salvation in fear and trembling.

READ WHAT JESUS SAID...

Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

God kept his word...even....when an ass was used by Him to speak it forth...TO A DISOBEDIENT PROPHET...

but AFTER IT WAS OVER/after the fact ....the one that spoke it

forth.... she was still an ass..

~~~~

Read about it

Num 22:23 And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way.

Num 22:24 But the angel of the LORD stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.

Num 22:25 And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam's foot against the wall: and he smote her again.

Num 22:26 And the angel of the LORD went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left.

Num 22:27 ==>And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam's anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff.

Num 22:28 ---> And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

Num 22:29 And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.

Num 22:30 And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay. <---

Num 22:31 Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.

Num 22:32 And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee, because thy way is perverse before me:

NOTE-->
Num 22:33 And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive.

Take your stupid word play with our Bible and stick it where the sun don't shine. You're a pathetic excuse for a human being. I'm bothered that you refer to yourself as a Christian. There is nothing about you that looks anything like the Christ- nor the scriptures for that matter.

**********

Jesus left the honor, glory and luxury of heaven to come to earth and suffer the reproach, hatred and torture of the ungodly, IN ORDER TO PAY THE DEBT OF SIN FOR ALL MEN.

After the crucifixion He went into hell and preached the gospel (good news of God's love) to all those of Noah's time, giving them opportunity to receive that love.
(1Pe 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
1Pe 3:19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
1Pe 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.)

One Who suffered so much for us, and Who went so far to make provision for everyone who would receive Him, will not 'leave one stone unturned' in order to reach everyone.

As for 'all have sinned'... God knows ALL things...we don't...so I am happy to let HIM take care of those children. His judgment is ALWAYS fair and right...AND HE WILL NOT MISTREAT ONE OF THEM.. I don't have to worry about it for a minute.

Everything but a direct answer. Maybe this poster will try.

Do you believe God cares whether you are Protestant or Catholic or Jew or Hindu or Muslim (which is based almost entirely on the region in which you were born btw)?

Yes or no. If yes, please explain why.

Yes I did answer. Like a good parent, the love and trust of that child fulfills the parent's desire. Our trust in His provision is all that He needs.

GOD TELLS US BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS...

IN

Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Eph 5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

DO YOU BELIEVE... GOD WILL DO... WHAT HE TELLS US NOT TO DO...

Jesus came first for the Jews. They rejected the messiah and were then cut off. The old covenant - that is the sacrificial system of the Hebrews - ended with the final sacrifice, Jesus the lamb who takes away the sins of the world. Jesus came to save all who accept him, their creator. The Bible is not bull, pagan evolution theories are.
Jesus was foretold to come in the OT book of Daniel giving the exact year he would come. Many Jews did count the days of that prophecy (Daniel 9:24-27) and did convert to Christian. Early Christianity was entirely Jews.
It's a silly argument: "the Jew came to save Christians". He did come first to the Jews but then turned to the Gentile -- all who believe. And this was not the founding of the Roman Church. Im no Catholic. The first Christians were the Nazarenes. The Roman Church did not begin until 300 years later.
